About the Producer

Diego Curtaz took over the family company from his grandfather in 1981. Located in the village of Gressan, he owns 1 hectare of vines divided in three separate plots. They are on northern exposure lower slopes (10% to 25% slope), with stony and loamy soil, up to 650 to 750 meters above sea level. Diego also cultivates 1.5 ha of apple and pear orchards. His total production is tiny, under 600 cases.

Vinification: the grapes are completely destemmed. After about 24 hours, fermentation begins in an open vat; a partial remontage is executed twice a day. After 10 days, the wine is racked and placed in botti of fiberglass and stainless steel, in which it remains at a constant temperature of 68F until the malolactic fermentation begins. The wine is decanted and left to rest until Easter, at a temperature of about 50F. It is bottled after a light filtration through cardboard and spends a couple more months in bottle before being released early June. 

Farming/vinification practices: organic, non-certified. The wines are vegan.
